Eid al-Fitr is one of the two official holidays in Islam. It is celebrated on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal and marks the end of the month-long fast observed during the month of Ramadan.
Eid al-Fitr (Feast of Breaking the Fast) is an extremely important religious festival observed by Muslims worldwide.
On the Day of Eid, Muslims are expected to give as much charity as possible, greet one another and show happiness. Common greetings during Eid al-Fitr are “Blessed Eid” (Eid Mubarak) and “Happy Eid” (Eid Sa'id). Some countries also have greetings in the local language. People are encouraged to forget animosities and forgive one another for what they may have done during the year.
